Orchid Patient Advocacy Group (OPAG)

Orchid is dedicated to creating accurate, accessible, and relevant information for people who have been affected by prostate, testicular and penile cancer and those involved in their care and support.

Over the next few years, we will be reviewing and updating our current information as well as developing new information resources to help meet the needs of the increasing number of people being affected. We are also working with other patient focused organisations to develop collaborative projects and resources.

To help ensure that we provide accurate and useful information, we are forming the Orchid Patient Advocacy Group (OPAG). This group will consist of a dedicated number of healthcare professionals with a comprehensive knowledge of prostate, testicular and penile cancer, and professionals promoting patient advocacy, who can review and help shape our future information to ensure it is of the highest standard.
